Main Loch Improvements - February 2007

The contours of the Main Loch have been dramatically altered and improved by extensive earthmoving works with the aim of making the fishing much better and easier.  The water level was lowered and a huge excavator with a 17.5 metre reach was used to smooth out the lumps and bumps left over from the old quarry workings.  Click pictures to enlarge
